TN Police Chiefs caught in a bald faced lie by the Tennessean

Tennessee law enforcement officials who claimed grocery and convenience stores do a poorer job of following alcohol laws than liquor stores couldn’t back that up with statistics on Thursday.

After The Tennessean’s request for data, the head of the Tennessee Grocers & Convenience Store Association also called on the police group to produce evidence to back its claim.

“I didn’t see any statistics that they provided that showed any correlation between sales at our stores and any detriment to alcohol-related issues,” said Jarron Springer, president of the grocers group. “We respect those law enforcement officials but, again, didn’t see any evidence.”
